I haven't updated this thread for a while but lots of things have been happening.

I have got my poly mounts for the engine and the gearbox, I'll post some photos when I have mounted the engine.

I bought myself an engine crane and engine stand to make my life easier. I needed to flip the engine over and modify the sump so there would be space for the main crossmember.

I have placed an order for an AT Power belt driven dry sump kit but I did not order the billet oil pan with it to try and save some money. Due to Covid it will take 8 weeks to arrive.

Not to worry I just need to make an oil pan and then I can continue getting the engine and transmission mounted in the car.

Version 1 of the dry sump oil pan involved cutting the base off the OEM pan and then a lot of CAD to form the desired shape.

I went as far as tracing all the cardboard templates onto some sheet metal and then cutting them all out and bending them to shape.

It was then I realised I was never going to be able to beat the metal into shape well enough to close up all the gaps and weld it together.

So I went back to the drawing board and came up with a very simplified design that was much easier to cut out and will be relatively simple to weld.

The engine is on a 13 degree tilt so oil will run down to the box section in the bottom of the pan where I will have two -12 lines running to the external oil pump. I have also added a notch that will give extra clearance for my tubular crossmember and to some degree separate the scavenge stages from each other.

It's all ready to weld, I'm just waiting for the -12 AN weld on fitting to arrive.
